An executive order was issued March 6, 2017. The order addresses efforts to improve the screening and vetting protocols and procedures associated with visa-issuance process and the United States Refugee Admissions Program.
We remind everyone holding paper or implied visitor visas that a visa does not guarantee passage into the United States of America. US Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) Officers have complete discretion on whether individuals are permitted entry into the USA.
Message from President regarding travel ban to the U.S.
An executive order took effect January 27, 2017, banning entry into the United States by nationals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
I am sure I speak on behalf of the entire University of Windsor community in reaffirming our belief in the importance of treating all people, regardless of their nationality, religion, skin colour, or ability, with respect and dignity.
We caution undergraduate, graduate students, faculty, and staff who are citizens of these seven countries against crossing the Windsor-Detroit border until otherwise notified, and remind all students holding visitor visas that a visa does not guarantee passage into the United States of America. US Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) Officers have complete discretion on whether individuals are permitted entry into the USA.
We will provide every support we can in these uncertain times. The University will provide updates as they become available. General questions can be directed to the International Student Centre (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Alan Wildeman, President and Vice-Chancellor
The University of Windsor has one of the most internationalized student bodies in Canada, and international students contribute significantly to all aspects of our campus. (President's Strategic Plan)
The ISC guides and supports international students starting before arrival on campus - right up to graduation. Canadian students will also find opportunities here to meet people from around the world and to travel abroad on Exchange.
The International Students Centre is located on the 2nd floor of Laurier Hall , our entrance is just north of the Laurier Hall Residence entrance.
